Embracing Adulthood


I still remember those days when I first stepped into the actual work force (For those who have yet to know, I actually have a 6-9 full time job although I hardly ever disclose much about work online). I had trouble adjusting my lifestyle to waking up early and reaching home late. Everyday I was just beyond fatigue. I used to stay up late during uni time. But not as soon as I started working. Work, eat, home, sleep. The mundane cycle repeats 5 days a week, one week after another. 


Later on, I began to adapt. From sleeping at 10pm, it became 11pm, then eventually 12am. These days, I can hardly doze off before midnight. 


By delaying my sleep time, it gave me ample time to do some other stuff. Like reading or something. LOL okay fine, I admit that at one point of time, I was a complete couch (bed) potato. I would dabao food right after work, watch Korean drama on my MacBook while I eat, proceed to shower and continue watching that drama on my bed. I would just keep watching until it was time to sleep wtf.


One day, I began to question my lifestyle. Work, eat, drama, sleep, repeat. I must be capable of doing way more than that. At the same time I happened to encounter a Japanese client at work. That was when I decided to sign up for Japanese lesson. No hesitation, just paid and attended the class 2 weeks after (and dragged colleague along too lol).


It has been 4 months since I started the lesson. I have passed the Beginner Level and am now at Elementary 1. It was really lucky of us to have been assigned a funny and wonderful sensei whose method of teaching is effective. So far all the classes are fun and I hardly had to force myself to finish the homework since I enjoy it. I have promised myself not to give up until I have become fluent in the language. After that I would sign up for Korean class XD


With the new mall opened at my work place, I have also signed up for gym membership. TBH I am not a sporty person. But these days I feel that my health has been deteriorating rapidly. I get tired from shopping for only half an hour. Every now and then I would fall sick. A few years back, I was still able to shop all day and stay up all night without feeling exhausted. Oh my youth, gone with the wind :(


Just the other day, my bestie and I happened to be at TREC. So we thought, why not drop by Zouk and have a look? Seriously I have never stepped into the new Zouk ever since it shifted. In fact I have stopped clubbing since the final year of uni. What used to be a fun night out had become a tiring affair. I still have my Zouk membership card (don't judge), so we went in and had a quick tour. It was funny cause we were quite lost at the entrance. Didn't know which entrance we were supposed to go to. Didn't want to appear like an idiot in front of other party-goers so I called up Steph (who else would I have called besides the queen of Zouk wtf) and asked for direction wtf. I asked her which way was heading to Phuture and Velvet (well at least I still know the name of the room lol). 


It was 10pm so the club was completely empty, hence allowed us a clearer view of the interior. But the downside was we wouldn't know how the actual party scene is like. Guess we need not know. Because after 5 minutes inside we already felt suffocated by the heavy ciggies odour from the carpet wtf. So yea our tour lasted for 5 minutes. LOL.


I am waking up in 8 hours for an early morning gym session as I am typing this. Don't really know the purpose of this post but I guess my main point is, I am feeling my age catching up and the signs that come along with it. I can't be young and wild and free, but instead I will work my way to becoming wiser, healthier and happier! ^^
